. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so he has lost the one advantage that he once had. secondly, there were a lot of independent, undecided voters in 1980 who had lost faith in carter and were just waiting to see if they could feel confidence in his challenger. there are so few independent voters. this is an election that's about mobilizing the bases. so going after the independent voter is not a big surprise. having said all that in the memo put out by david axelrod -- >> who is who? >> he's the campaign guru on the obama side. >> right. >> he points out tha
. right. i guess the political's latest obama opened up a national lead there 50-47. but i think as you say before that's not is the important headline. what is important is obama is picking up in florida and colorado for instance. >> yeah. it's the electoral count and the other problem is -- my lord 50 years from now, presidential historians are going to study the romney campaign. it's not possible to do more wrongs than have been done in the last couple of days. cold fusion? that was debunked 20 years ago. why don't the windows in the airplane open?

for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy questio
obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to have to go into next year, see tax rates rise for everybody, because it is then that we see enough economic pain that it generates political will necessary to do the kind of things we need to get done and -- that means that addressing our long-term fiscal problems which means cutting spending, and raising tax revenue to address long-term fiscal issues. >> thanks very much for coming in. >> thank you. >>> what's it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular be george w. bush? that's coming up next. also, what caused this deadly school bus crash outside of a high school? we have details. because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. togeth

[applause] i have to think that these refs were part-time from the obama administration and the budget office. they see the national debt clock staring them in the face. they see a debt crisis. and they ignore and pretend it didn't even happen. they're trying to pick the winners and losers and they don't even do that very well. look, we have a big choice to make. this is not an ordinary time. it is not an ordinary election. we're not simply choosing who is going to be the next president for four more years. we are choosing what kind of country is america going to be for a generation. [applause] that's the kind of choice we have in front of us. and i'll say this. we're here in a fourth generation family business. we are here in a building that creates jobs, that promotes work. that struggles in global re here in a place that is the embodiment of the american idea.

't yet know because right now it looks like obama is doing really, really well in pennsylvania. and the surrounding states, new jersey, new york, or maryland for that matter. i think romney does have a shot obviously in some of the other states like ohio, not that far away, but pennsylvania looks like a long shot. he was doing some fund-raising there earlier today, had a rally in pennsylvania, but we'll see if this is serious, this notion that he potentially has a shot in pennsylvania. if he does, it would be a dramatic shift. >> wow, we heard, wolf, a lot of analysts say the real turning point could come in the debates which begin wednesday in denver. now we also have received this memo from a romney senior adviser that makes it sound as though romney is the underdog. let me read a portion of it now. saying president obama is a uniquely gifted speaker and is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. this will be the eighth one on one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first. so what is at th

, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> all right. i don't get any of that. i'm not sure what his message was. let me say this. household incomes are down over 8%, another 1% in august alone reported this morning. the labor force, shrinking, poverty way up, president obama himself offers no middle class tax cuts, he just wants to extend them, not new ones. there's no answers to this. it's mitt romney who has got to stay on the pro-growth message, take-home pay. take-home pay. i talked about it the last couple of nights, wrote a column on

're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
before. >> right. and that's the issue. the republicans have backed off this whole idea of obama as a job killer. they used to use that terminology. they tend not to now only because they've seen this coming. but that would be the strongest argument now that the jobs are not of the same quality. but in terms of numbers, this was a very big argument for the republicans six months ago and prior to that that more jobs -- in fact, the way they like to say it, wolf, you've probably heard it many times before there were more people working on the first day of president obama's presidency than at any other point. that's the way they'd like to say it. bottom line it was a small milestone but an important one for the president. >> now, the other number we're looking at is gdp growth in the last quarter. it went up but not by much. >> right. so the way you measure growth in the economy is how much it grew versus the same quarter, the same three months the year before. and the most recent quarter that we have numbers for is the second quarter of this year. we had thought that the economy grew 1.7%,
the psychology, president obama, i am right there with you. i think we all may be on the couch. i want to know who has been to a shrink. the best thing in the world is to get to talk about the things that matter most to you and have somebody give you feedback that is useful. i asked him, had you ever talk to anyone about that? i could see the wheels turning and i am not even thinking about that question right here. >> back? -- next? >> how did he feel about that? >> i had a feeling that if we were back in college, we would have a really good conversation. >> he had been asked 20 questions and it was all about the news of the day. my mother had been interested in the new earth series. we had had this conversation about what the philosophy was behind it. i asked him if he recognized it and he said that he had not read that. his staff was e-mail me, what kind of crazy question? it was the last question, it wasn't televised. i felt like i would learn a little bit about him if i had known that. my mom was very happy. >> what is the most outrageous thing you have done for a scoop? tell us the truth.
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about
it. we have five minutes. we can negotiate a deal right here. do you favor the plan, senator obama? senator mccain, are you in favor of this plan? >> we have not seen the language yet. i think there is constructive work being done out there for the viewers who are watching. i am optimistic. the question i think we need to ask ourselves is how did we get into this situation in the first place? two years ago, i warned that because of the relaxed regulation, we would potentially have a problem in trying to stop the abuses and mortgages that were taking place at the time. last year, i wrote to the secretary of treasury to make sure he understood the magnitude of this problem and to call on him to bring all the stakeholders together to try to deal with it. the question i think we have to ask ourselves is yes we have to solve this problem short term. we will have to intervene. there is no doubt about it. but we will also have to look at how is it that we have shredded so many regulations, we did not set up a 21st century regulatory framework to deal with these problems, and that is in pa

ask influence votes being cast right now. both candidates have traveled to early-voting states to implore voters to cast their ballots. barack obama will be preparing for debates in nevada, where cbs expects 65% of vote voters to vote early. his presence in the state of nevada stirs up activities for democrats who then will try to arck up their voters early. if a campaign can get lots of voters to vote early, then the campaign can spend its time and resources in other battleground states with other voters. >> pelley: these early votes aren't counted until election day. i wonder how do the campaigns know how people are voting early? >> the secretary of state in most of the early voting states hports daily the names of those who voted-- not how they voted, just that they did. what the campaigns then do is match that against the lists of voters they've identified over the years. so if mrs. jones has asked for an early ballot but isn't on that daily report, the campaign will contact her. this is why ground game matters. they often know what mrs. jones ndres about, and that's what t

. "the new york times" rights abroad this, the continuity about obama and bush, for that matter. they only changed things 10 degrees one way or the other. there will be some issues. obviously, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia. on iran, it's harder call, for instance. maybe you're going to get to this eventually, -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. i consider it to be an on unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house that the united states might end up engaging in military action with iran, what will that do to all of these consensuses about spending and whether american people are injected in foreign policy and issues like the defense budget? as issues like that and the ones we do not even know about that make me wary of all of these straight line projections we're making in the future of based on what things look like right now. >> which point? >> any of them. but i meant the one about iran and the likelihood we would enter into that regardless of who wins. what's right now, it's not clear to me. >> question fro
